After the AHG Level 1 Foundations Coursework (Curriculum) has been completed, you can advance to the AHG Level 2 Counseling training and AHG Level 3 for our AHG Internship on the Helpline. This allows students to gain hands-on experience by responding to animal caregivers in urgent need while supported by mentors and animal hospice care practitioners. Completing the Internship ensures your certification(s) are more than bookwork. The internship will help you gain confidence and competence. You'll be able to ask mentors questions, refine your skills, and be a source of comfort for pet parents by serving on our online Animal Hospice Helpline.

What is the AHG Helpline?


Makes A Difference

Once you know what to do, it's vital you learn how to do it. The first time you begin to use your training with a caregiver and animal companion, having a mentor available will build your confidence. Our goal is to unleash your potential, so you can become certified and be ready to go. Long term, we want you equipped to give back by mentoring others from your own experience.
